About Me

UPDATE: 12/02/24:

Just a note to let you know that I'm back. Our holidays were not the best, it was very sad so I will be coming back slowly. My little brother passed away from cancer the week before Christmas and both of my elderly parents came down with covid. If it hadn't been for my girls (especially my middle daughter) I would not have had any place to go for the holidays. My health has deteriorated some too. I can not hardly walk due to my knees being so bad. But God has taken care of me, I didn't get the covid and was able to spend time with my kids and grandkids. Please keep me in your prayers along with my family. 2024 is a new year and I know God will make it good. Be safe happy and thankful no matter what happens.

God Bless everyone.

A NOTE ABOUT SWAPPING: If I join a swap I will always follow through and send it. If you haven't received a swap from me within a reasonable amount of time (I like to give at least 30 days for anything international) please send me a message before leaving a rating, I would be more than happy to resend you the swap. It is terribly disappointing to not receive something you have been waiting for. 2nd SWAPPING NOTE: I will always leave a rating. If I haven't rated you drop me a line to ensure I received what you sent and just to remind me. Sometimes I get super busy and just plain forget. If you want a heart from me just follow the swap rules and pay attention to my profile. Take the time to read about who I am as a person and get to know me. I definitely will be able to tell if you didn't read my profile. If you are making an ATC for me please note that in my collection I prefer flat ATCs, NO 3D's Please. When I say 3D I'm meaning the really thick ones. If you've used an embellishment that is only slightly raised, maybe due to the type of glue or decoupage you use that's not what I consider to be 3D. With all that being said lets start having some fun........=0)

A NOTE ABOUT POSTAGE: If you receive a swap from me with postage due then know I am so SORRY. Please contact me ASAP and I will reimburse you. I have a scale at home and try to fill my envies as full as the stamp/postage will allow. I enjoy sending extras, and I like sharing what I have, but sometimes I tend to stuff my envies too much. Thank you for your patience concerning this matter........=)

NOW ABOUT ME AND MINE: I am 61 years old, divorced and the mother of 3 children, 2 girls, Jami (Billy) and Renee(Jesse), 1 boy, Adam. I have 8 grandkids, 5 boys (Dakota, Jackson, Jayden, Dason and Daxton) and 3 girls (Haddie, Suri and Carlie). My whole life revolves around God, my kids, grand kids and my fur babies.

I love doing RAKs!!

I love all kinds of animals but I really love and enjoy my cats and my dog.

I have done rescues and currently have 2 cats. I have 1 HUGE but GENTLE boxer/pit bull mix. I love him soooooo much.

As I said before, I love animals in general and one of my passions is fighting animal cruelty and encouraging people to spay and neuter their pets.

My Kitties

Here are all my furry babies, that I have left (kitties) ~~ They have all been Spayed or Neutered~~:

Boo Boo - Female, tabby in color, approximately 7 years old. She was also an orphaned kitten that I took in when she was about 3 weeks old. I bottle fed her, she is very independent and loves to hunt critters. I'd say her momma cat may have been feral. When she was little she had such a sweet nature, but as she's gotten older she seems to get grouchier. She loves her human momma though, I can just tell.

Uno - RIP Uno passed this year. She will be missed. Female, black in color, with minimal spots of white, approximately 7 years old. She is was and still is partially feral but has become more trusting.

My Dog

girl and dog

Roscoe passed away May 26. 2022. My heart is broken but God with His infinite Grace is seeing me through this loss.

Roscoe - Male, black and white Boxer/Pit Bull mix, approximately 10 years old. He would have been 11 years old in September. He's my buddy, and my baby, but most of all he was my friend. He is such a beautiful dog and he has gotten so big. I think he is about 115 lbs (from his last vet visit). Roscoe is really a gentle giant and he is the king of beggars. If I'm eating supper he will come next to me and lay his head in my lap or on a table and look at me with those big pitiful eyes and I just have to share. I have become a real dog lover!!!

Favorite books and music

I like books that are thrillers, suspensful and I also like self help books and I like biographys and autobiographys.

I like several different kinds of music such as , christian, country, oldies, easy listening, soft rock.... I like Kid Rock, Tim McGraw, etc.

Likes

I like pretty much like all colors, but I do have some favorites, such as: green, blue, purple, orange, primary colors. I love BRIGHT BOLD colors, I also love the colors of fall, earth tones. I am NOT a big fan of PASTELS when receiving them as extras, but they are ok for any ATC you might send me.

I'm finicky about the coffee and tea I drink so please don't send. HOWEVER, I do love hot cocoa or chocolate Ovaltine, DO NOT SEND anything sugar free, I really LOVE my sugar.

I NO LONGER COLLECT KAWAII ITEMS

dislikes/do not send

DISLIKES/DO NOT SEND:

if a swap states that you are to check your partners profile for dislikes and you send something from this list **be aware I will rate down. If it's stated then it's a requirement. **

  • I don't like lace on my ATCs.

  • I don't like anything creepy, goth/dark, skulls, evil type things, or clowns.

  • I don't like coconut, raisins, or anything sugar free LOL.

If you are my partner in an ATC swap please remember that I prefer flat ATCs (NO thick 3D) when you make mine. Thank You!!

**If you send stickers please do not send 3D type stickers, kiddie stickers, or the dollar store generic stickers and please only send holiday stickers during the holiday season and not all throughout the year.

I do not wear make up or nail polish so please do not send

Please don't send flavored teas. I don't like fruity teas. If you are in a swap and one of the choices is tea bags you can substitute (regular is OK but NO sugar free ) Chocolate Ovaltine packets or hot chocolate packes of any brand.

I want to apologize for even having a dislike list.

Wish List

I'm in desperate need of Swap Cards. You know the kind that you send with your swap/wish/RAK, etc. that tells you partner what you are sending. I like for them to have enough room so if you need to list what you are sending you can write it on the same card. Then some that are smaller that just doesn't leave space for writing a list if the swap doesn't require it. I hope that makes sense to someone out there. Thanks to anyone who tries to help me out.....=0)

Anything vintage Kewpie, any images need to be ATC size.

Inspiring quotes, words, etc on paper or stamped images. That are small enough to fit on an ATC.

Easy DIY book on stamping (something with lots of pics, I'm a visual learner).

Anything CATS/KITTENS.

Anything DOGS/PUPPIES.

All things vintage.

Anything vintage Kewpie, any images need to be ATC size.

If a swap calls for tea's (I do not want them) send instead substitute hot cocoa or chocolate ovaltine (I love these). If you are to send more than 1 kind of tea please don't just extra send the cocoa or ovaltine. No sugar free. Thanks!!

I would love to have different (Pre 1980) game cards from Monopoly, Candyland, etc.

Comment: Thank you for the envelopes and cute stamped images. I think the calendar page ones picked up a musty smell somewhere along the line.
Response: I do appologize. I had trouble finding so sizable flower paper to create my own envelopes so I used some that had been previously sent to me. I did not notice the smell or I would not have sent them. Again I do apologize and if you would like I would gladly send you more to replace those. It would have been nice if you had privately brought this to my attention and before rating me given me the opportunity to have sent you some other ones..
